EU Biodiesel Production Increased 35% in 2008

Mind you, I find some of the current biofuel-derived sources controversial; I'm much more optimistic of future-generation biofuels, such as cellulosic ethanol or algae biofuel. Never the less, Ghawar Guzzler reports the news; no bias, no bull (link to article).

In Belgium, the European Biodiesel Board (EBB) said that European biodiesel production increased 35 percent in 2008 over 2007, despite reductions in production in Germany and Austria. The group said that production increased to 7.76 million tonnes, or 65 percent of global market share, but added that half of the biodiesel pants in Europe have been idled by poor demand.
